What are you most proud of? It was my first attempt to do this kind of project and I am so proud of the outcome. I've got lots of lovely and flattering comments from my friends and family when I posted the pictures in face book.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? To save money on plants,it's better to plant them from seeds,that way you can see them grow from seedlings till they're blooming with beautiful flowers. They don't just admired by my friends and family,they attract lots of wildlife too like bees,butterflies and lady birds.

My back garden is about 30 feet long and only 12 feet wide. Very limited space for planting but I've found a way by going upwards. I improvised by planting them in trio planters which my husband drilled holes in the middle of the planters. The metal rod were then placed in the middle of the empty cider barrel,filled it up with rocks,stones gravel and soil until it is stable and securely in place. We then inserted the trio planter with plants in and then another one on top which is securely slotted in to the trio planter below.
